Jet City Sports Club‘s debut offering, “Bloodhounds”, is a testament to artists’ determination for their craft despite the difficulties COVID-19 has brought to the world. The band hails originally from Sydney, Australia, and shreds electric guitar, angelic vocals, sizzling drums, and bass to form this hefty project of newly acquainted musicians.

Through a grapevine of school related friendships and musical connections, high school friends Jack (guitar) and Dominic (drums) met Seb (bass) before lockdown began. Meanwhile Lilla, whom Jack met also through another colleague, had already written a handful of songs with the latter a few months back. The four-piece would eventually join forces June of last year, just as the restrictions began to lift.

This feel-good vibe offers perspective on the concept of “inner peace” or simply feeling enough… a welcome break from classic love songs or their antithesis and breakup ballads so often circulating amongst musical spheres. “Yesterday’s meditation/ made me realize/ without any hesitation/ what to vocalize/ I look up to the sky/ and my mind is flying high/ I’m all I ever needed/ Don’t call me conceited/ I am enough/ I am enough,” declares Lilla.

This number is the opening track on the band’s much-awaited debut EP, September Sun (due early 2021). Through recognizable indie pop sonic rock attire the outfit intentionally showcases upbeat songs with positive messages to contrast the macabre of our recent past and present. Some of the group’s major influences come from artists like Julia Jacklin, DMA’S, and ’80s/’90s British guitar-based acts. The mastery of their sound and craft shines loud and clear in the debut release.
